It looks to have an interesting history too. The house is perhaps earlier than you might imagine, dating back to 1958 and designed by a student of Mies van der Rohe as part of an architectural competition. The architect sadly died not long after in a plane crash, so it’s certainly a case of what might have been.

Prefabricated insulated concrete walls, night storage heating, linoleum floors and large expanses of glass were key features, but the passing of time apparently took away much of what was great about this place, However, last year, the entire house was completely renovated ‘at great expense’ and with one eye on that heritage. The result is what you see here, something pretty special and worthy of a house in a ‘protected’ area that also hosts designs from the likes of Walter Gropius and Arne Jacobsen.

You can see the finishes in the images here, but you’ll probably want to know the room breakdown, which is listed as two bedrooms and a single bathroom, buy with a decent amount of unlisted open living space too over the 154 sq. metres.

That refit obviously wasn’t cheap, which means the house isn’t either.€1,540,000 is the price of the place.
